screwdriver rear instead of Allen key?

PostedAugust 7, 2014
No, I do not recommend this product.
Pros: Lightweight, Looks great
Cons: Poor quality
On a Fuji 1.3C for son, all the chainring bolts worked loose after a few weeks, not tightened correctly at factory dso not Evan's fault. York Manager was super helpful and posted over a new set as we couldn't get to the store. The FWE bolts aren't as good as the Praxis Works that Fuji fit, which are tightened by an Allen key from both sides. The FWE bolts have a screwdriver slot on the back and Allen key hole at the outside, so aren't as easy to install without scratching. One snapped even though carefully nipped, but luckily I'd hung onto the one or two Praxis bolts and was able to fit one of those instead. The bolts don't match but I'll pick up a set somewhere, at least Evans acted quickly.

And a good choice of colours

Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Lightweight
Nice alloy bolts at a decent price. Easy to fit and feels really durable and well made even with their humble weight.

Good colour and bling factor

PostedNovember 27, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Lightweight, Looks great
Cons: Poor quality
The bolts seemed decent enough quality and the 1st 2 installed easliy. The 3rd bolt snapped off presumably as I'd over torqued which may have been my fault but it did seem to happen quite easily. Luckily my Shimano Hollowtech chainset only needed 4 bolts and there are 5 bolts in a packet so it wasn't a problem. So in summary, a good bold colour ( I got blue) but be careful on the tightening/torque.
